(WTRF) A video going around on social media, getting over 700,00 views, shows a West Virginia Journalist getting struck by a vehicle live on television.
WSAZ-TV reporter Tori Yorgey says she’s ‘okay’ after she got right back up to finish her report.
“Oh my god! I just got hit by a car, but I’m OK. I just got hit by a car, but I’m OK, Tim,’ Tori says.
“Well, that’s a first for you on TV, Tori,” the anchor Tim Irr says.
Tori says this isn’t the first time she was struck by a vehicle, she also claimed she got hit by a vehicle in college.
the driver apparently apologized to Tori, but Tori said she was alright. “Ma’am, you are so sweet, and you are OK,” she told her.
Tori added: “I thought I was in a safe spot but clearly we might need to move the camera over a little bit.”
Starting Feb. 1, Yorgey will be working for ABC affiliate WTAE in Pittsburgh.
